I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Company with huge potential if top management is willing to take a hard look at themselves and the impact they have on it's people, results, and long-term outlook. The cumbersome management processes are killing the productivity and innovation of the company

Cons

Very political and arrogant in certain areas of the business. Company prides itself on innovation - but very limited to product not commercial in a time when they need to think innovate their go-to-market approach. Hard to see this turning around when top management is blind to the faults of "the in-crowd"...

Advice to Management

Shake up the people at the top jobs. Reward results versus political "insiders". Beware of the arrogance in THV

    I worked at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Boundless market opportunity
    Challenging and interesting product development
    Good pay

    Cons

    Top heavy management structure - the better to surround the guilty and punish the innocent
    Culture of blame - no cross-functional collaboration; every man (woman) for himslef(herself)
    Poor management guidance - no mentoring whatsoever
    No work life balance and no worker appreciation

    Advice to Management

    You have talented people, develop them. Stop the hire/fire merry-go-round. Or, if you must, try a little navel gazing and fire yourselves.
    Critical Care BU is so dysfunctional, you did a dry run employee opinion survey. Afterwards, the actual survey results still tanked. What's up with that?
